A Stalled Wing

By brian1208
Looking through some pics I shot in the early days of owning the EM-1 I came across this short series of shots using the Olympus 40-150 to record the under-wing detail of a Gull that was putting on a show along Mudeford Quay.

It reminded me why I enjoy using the EM-1 so much for my birding work (as if I could forget Grin )

The show what happens to the soft feathers under the wing as the gulls manoeuvres about the sky

I hope you find them interesting

Thanks all, it was a toss up between this shot and #2 for the lead image, I rather liked the difference between the order of the lower wing and the feathery mess under the turning wing but the other isn't bad either Smile
